The 2006 Inc. 500, as revealed in the September issue of Inc., reported the most robust bunch of companies the magazine has ever compiled, with aggregate revenue of $19.7 billion, up from $16.5 billion last year and $12.9 billion in 2000.

This year’s list is the first to include businesses that started up immediately before and after September 11, 2001 – including the No. 1 company and 20 companies in the top 50, including ITSolutions. In total, 104 companies listed on this year’s Inc. 500 were started after 2000.

“If you want to find out which companies are going to change the world, look at the Inc. 500,” said Inc.

The Inc. 500 list is Inc. magazine’s tribute to American business ingenuity and ambition.”

“To make the Inc. 500 List is an extraordinary honor,” said ITSolutions CEO Stefan Lalos. “We have worked very hard to grow our business, which is clearly reflected in this achievement.”
